Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #250

March 2, 2017

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.

 

White to play and mate Black

2501

Bronstein v Geller, URS Chmpship, Moscow 1961

 

Solution

I found the win 1 Rf7, which apparently is mate in 7; but missed the prettier move played in the game, 1 Qg6!, which is even faster.

2502

Geller resigned. 1…fg 2 Rg7+ and 3 Ng6 mate.

2503

The game, which is in Megabase, is worth playing through: a 20 move victory by Bronstein in the Nimzo-Indian.

 

FEN

4r1k1/pR3pp1/1n3P1p/q2p4/5N1P/P1rQpP2/8/2B2RK1 w – – 0 20
